Two huge wooden spools stood, one on either side of the platform. An axle through the center of each spool allowed them to be turned by teams of strong, sturdy men -ten per spool - pushing against poles sticking out of the sides. Pegs on top of the spool pushed against complementary pegs on another spool, acting as gears. As the slaves pushed against the main spools, the secondary spools would wind stout ropes, passing through pulleys and fastened to two large slabs of heavy stone set upon the platform, hinged at the bottoms. The walls were festooned with metal spikes, crudely fashioned but deadly sharp. The tightening ropes would pull the hinged slabs upright, impaling anyone trapped between them.

This spike trap was the favored execution method of the wicked Queen Zagorja, who delighted in watching the gruesome spectacle in person. Usually, the unfortunate victim was a soldier derelict in his duties, or a rebel agitating for her overthrow. But today, the condemned was a most unusual personage: the warrior woman known only as "Red the paladin".

**********
This scene, created as a birthday gift for Red's creator pumpmonger, was shamelessly ripped off from inspired by a similar scene from the 1964 Italian movie Maciste e la regina de Samar ("Maciste and the Queen of Samar", released in the US under the title Hercules Against the Moon Men).

    An interesting idea.  you have thought of the problems that are easily visible in the scene from "Hercules Against The Moon Men" and tried to figure out how this device can be made to work.  

    Perhaps you cold check ou "The Triumph of Hercules", "Mole Men vs. the Son of Hercules", ""Atlas In The Land of the Cyclops", "Goliath Against the Giants" and other peplum flicks that you can adapt or improve upon.

Maybe until one of the ropes breaks from the strain...?

I like how this came out but I kinda wish we'd see Red in a predicament that wasn't life or death. Maybe something like having to get to the video rental store before she has to pay a late fee on her DVD's. It's gotta be better than always getting the business end of a red hot poker from every asshole on the planet and then some. ^^; But, that's just one fellow's opinion.

Still, if we're gonna use inspiration from swords and sandals movies, how about one particular Hercules movie where Red tosses a bear into space and has to fight someone wielding a rainbow fire sword.*

Awesome job on this birthday gift, David.

*if anyone can guess which Hercules movie I just mentioned, you get a no-prize.

Maybe that should be the next series, the sand and sandal perils of Red. What other challenges and perils would you like?

Heh, Red's adventures already remind me of these kind of "sword and sandal" movies. Indeed, after I finished this piece I started thinking of how the movie Hercules Against the Moon Men could be "adapted" into a Red adventure. (Just another project I'll probably never get to...)
